I still have scones left over from last week. So I thought I'd try some brownies instead.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup maple syrup
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch square pan.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. While cooling beat eggs, syrup, and vanilla, then add it to the butter and beat until creamy. Beat in the cocoa, then add and beat in the flour and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Brownies are done when a knife inserted comes out clean. Be careful not to overcook.
